Signs of the Future


I know I’ve touched on this subject before in one of the Sick Day posts, but… I find political signs offensive. Have you ever been convinced to vote for someone by a sign on someone's lawn? Lawn signs are a simple reminder that there are people you agree with and the others with the opposing signs are assholes. It comes down to support. No matter whom your candidate is, all that plastic crap on the lawns of America will end up as land fill. What a shame that no matter how much you campaign on environmental issues your political and your campaign legacy is plastic garbage that will take thousands of years to disintegrate.

...right along side the empty campaign promises that take seconds to forget.

The signs do no good, waste of money! Money would be better spent helping the homeless or food banks. Saxton's signs are everywhere replace them with food. Hasn't anyone figured out the sign don't influence a vote?

I've often thought the same thing; nobody is influenced by a sign.

Mel, you're just trying to get on my good side. Cool article, though I almost missed the red hypertext.

Geeze, it even seems like Gearhead somewhat agrees...that has to be a first. I'll post something he'll disagree with tomorrow.

BTW Gearhead lives in Salem, so he may not get the Gearheart reference.

It's nice seeing that we all seem to be like minded on the subject.

I've also heard it said, "Opinions are like assholes, everbody has one and most of them stink!"

One thing that would simplify things and save tax dollars would be to change the law so that we could get our Oregon ballots from any source.
That way, for example, I could get my pre-marked ballot from Lars Larson, sign it and away it goes!

That's pretty funny, especially since Lars rakes the muck in Oregon, and he doesn't even live here. His life is based upon Oregon politics and he lives in Vancouver Washington. Maybe he should be pissing in his own pool.

That is what I think also. The funny thing is that he totally ignores the fact that Washington's taxes are WAY higher than Oregon's.

Yet he never complains about it. Maybe it's just that he doesn't have to pay them.

I would bet a month's pay that he buys a majority of his goods and services in Oregon so he can dodge the Sales Tax in Washington.
